  • 1 ½ pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • Optional: ¼ teaspoon cayenne (only if you like a little heat)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. First, marinate your chicken: in a large bowl add chicken, olive oil, cumin, coriander, turmeric, garlic powder, oregano, cayenne, salt and pepper. Toss together to coat the chicken and allow it to marinate for 30 minutes-1 hour, or up to 24 hours.

  2. Preheat your grill to 400 degrees F. Place the chicken directly on the grill. Grill chicken thighs for 6-8 minutes per side or until fully cooked and the meat thermometer reads 165 degrees F.

  3. Transfer cooked chicken to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm, then chop into bite sized pieces. Use in salads, tacos, bowls and more.
